Prior to my accident, i participated in various sports especially, volleyball, soccer and bodybuilding. Although i have an SCI injury today (LI - Incomplete Para), i would like to participate in any SCI Sport available i.e. in South Africa so, if any of you know of someone or some organization i could contact in SA, please inform thereof. Thank you in advance. http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif

Dwarf tossing is an up and coming sporting event-though I believe it is mainly popular in Austrailia. It hasn't quite caught on around here yet- I've called the local YMCA and SCI chapter and they thought I was crazy or something. I think it would enhance upper body strength and trunk balance.

Most countries have wheelchair sports associations in order to compete in the Paralympics, Gold Cup Games, etc. Do a computer search or check with a local disability advocacy group. Let us know if you still need help in finding resources.
